I came here from Seattle, USA to celebrate Christmas with my English and Dutch family. The mansion and grounds were purchased by Edward VII for his mistress. The property has a Victorian feel but the staff is not stuffy in any way. We felt treated as though we were honored guests in someone's home. The staff were able to maintain the character of the past while maintaining the modernity of the present. The food was excellent and the staff accommodated to food allergies.
Even though the majority of the guests were English, I didn't at all feel uncomfortable as an American, nor did my Dutch family feel uncomfortable. I would especially recommend this place if you are from abroad to get a true feel of the South Coast and English Culture.
